I am trying to move elements in a page in Firefox. I need to know the referencing syntax. Here are the basic parts of my page that  I need to get working.


function shiftThis(){                      
  document.MyID.style.left=100;   // this is the statement that I'm not sure about
}                                               // and is simply triggered by a button on the page


Note that I have position absolute stated in class style...

<STYLE><!--
  .whatever {visibility: visible;  position: absolute}  
--></STYLE>


This is the element I'm trying to move...

<div id='MyID'' class='whatever'>
<p> Hi There </p>
</div>
